At the end of the day I think TC are playing this right, surely you would be more disappointed should you pay the extra to travel in W then only a at the last minute to be told the plane was a single config and you would end up in Y?

Better to under promise and over deliver than to over promise and under deliver?

All names

can I ask which island in particular you are flying to?

Reason being is that Air Tanker (G-VYGK) are running a lot of the Caribbean flights in November to allow the other A330's a painting up break.

This aircraft does not have the premium cabin so therefore TC are unable to sell a service that doesn't exist on those flights.

Does anyone know what new routes TCX will announce in a few weeks? Sanya in China has been rumoured.

Sanya, ah back to Airtours 767 days. How many flights operated before that program was cancelled?

There were 2 seasons of Manchester-Sanya and 1 short season of East Midlands-Sanya too.

Apparently a deal was recently concluded where a Chinese tour company brought 5% of Thomas Cook, which at the time, was said to help open up a China to Thomas Cook, including the company running flights to China.

Beijing for Beijing-UK tour traffic and Manchester-Sanya were mooted.

Whilst on the subject of TCX long haul ops, does anyone know why they seem to have such an aversion to flying long haul from the Midlands? TOM manage a successful program from BHX and I think they also operate a few flights from EMA, however I think there is still opportunity for TCX, there are no flights from either airport to Cuba, Las Vegas for example. Us Midlander''s like to go exotic too!

Smaller fleet perhaps? Thomson have more B787s than Thomas Cook do A330s.

Does seem strange how TCX have increased operations in MAN and STN, yet out of the MAG Group EMA has seen nothing new.

ncl and gla

Hi Wsm991 and all,

As far as im aware from glasgow reductions in s/h routes
Kos
And the very popular bodrum route i travel on.this regularly
And caa figures suggest over 2,000 seats sold per month even as they are now the sole charter airline on this route now from june with thomson buying seats.
A number of regular customers have been asking and calling for it to be re instated.
A number of whom I have got to know over the years.

Also bodrum from ncl seat wise will be reduced from 220 down to 180
same at man and lgw but bfs ,ema etc keep 220 on the route.

If anyone knows of any further Gla changes feel free to post.

Almeria ex GLA, thats an odd one. Didnt last long first time it was tried, not sure why. Creatures of habit i guess, as even Murcia has been a bit 'iffy'
Presumably a Tunisia fill in.
